GRAYOWL POINT

'Shadowless’ album review by Laura Stanley (August 30, 2018).

There’s a closeness about Emma Citrine’s Shadowless. The Vancouver artist’s self-described “sad sounds” are delivered in soft tones and Citrine sounds nearly breathless – like she’s run home and recorded the songs before the sting of her emotions dissipated.” Read more...

”We’ll forgive Emma Citrine for releasing the six-song Shadowlessat the height of summer, however, because it’s just about the prettiest damn thing we’ve heard so far this year.”

'Shadowless' album review by Emma Sloan (July 20, 2018).

"Combining the delicate vocal perfection of Birdy with her own lyrical genius and fragile orchestral backbone, Shadowless is a labour of love that will inspire and enthral in equal measures." Read more...

'Sad Surprise' album review by Sarah Jickling (Feb 2017 Issue).

"I’m cynical when it comes to promises, but Sad Surprise delivers. At times, Emma reminds me of local dream-pop group The Belle Game and everyone’s favourite main stage festival act, Beach House."

RIDE THE TEMPO

'Sad Surprise' album review by Mark Anthony Brennan (Mar 8, 2017).

In essence a singer/songwriter, Emma Citrine tries on several musical overcoats throughout the course of this 6-track EP. At its heart is the intimate and emotive indie song “A Screaming Comes (Across the Sky)”, which boasts some hefty lyrics, such as, “He tells you to follow all the rules/Such proper language for an act so cruel”. Elsewhere Citrine takes on echoey blues (“Poor Boy, Blind Man”), mournful indie/roots (“The Fall”), and gentle folk (“Ledges”), but at all times she delivers killer lines with her heart on her sleeve."

"The deep-seeded regret that Citrine imbues into this sound is a contradiction, but shows a strength matched by her musicianship."
